The Proposed South Campus

Head-Royce School

Thanks to the community’s widespread support and years of thoughtful input gathered from neighbors and community stakeholders, the Oakland City Council gave unanimous approval for us to bring the South Campus Plan to life. Thank you to the many donors, letter writers, supporters, and speakers who shared their passion for this project and helped us cross the finish line. We will break ground this fall and look forward to showcasing the South Campus in 2024-25!

Not Just a School in Oakland, but an Oakland School

Increased Access

Expanding our campus footprint allows Head-Royce to expand student enrollment, increasing access to Head-Royce School for students of diverse backgrounds and talents. Adding 344 students helps fund a significant number of new scholarships.

Expanded Offerings

A larger student body in the Upper School expands academic course offerings, student clubs, social life, athletic excellence, and student leadership opportunities for all of our 9-12 students. Year-round students, including Heads Up and Summer Program, will also enjoy the new campus.

Student drop-offs and pick-ups will take place at the South Campus Welcome Center, alleviating traffic congestion on Lincoln Avenue.
